This is Leeds
There are still almost 1000 people sleeping rough in Calais since the destruction of informal refugee camp ‘The Jungle’.
I will be taking the donations to Help Refugees, an amazing charity I worked with when I was in Calais. Their urgent needs list is quite specific and I will aim to only take items from it (list below and photo attached) as they do not have enough volunteers to sort unneeded donations. If people have any of these things that they no longer need and that are in clean and in good condition then please bring them to us. If you don’t have any of these items but do have some cash then why not take a look around the local charity shops to get them 🙂
• Walking boots (sizes 40-43)
• Practical warm jackets and waterproofs
• Thermal leggings
• Tents and tarpaulins
• Sleeping bags and blankets
• Rain ponchos
Rainbow Junktion cafe will be a donation drop off point during opening hours (11am-3pm Monday, Thursday and Friday) until the8th February.
